With its unique blend of intense medical drama, off-beat humor and imaginative storytelling, St. Elsewhere paved the way for later TV classics, while introducing America to future superstars Mark Harmon, Howie Mandel and Denzel Washington. Over its six-season run, the ground-breaking, critically acclaimed St. Elsewhere won 13 Emmy Awards and was nominated for over 60. Eccentric, insightful, and intelligent, St. Elsewhere is considered to be one of the best dramas ever to air on broadcast television.

Before ER and Chicago Hope, audiences were mesmerized by the dramatic triumphs and humorous failings of Doctors Craig, Westphall and Ehrlich of Boston's St. Eligius Hospital - an understaffed, underfunded and always chaotic teaching facility - better known as St. Elsewhere. Now, the first season of this critically-acclaimed, one-of-a-kind series arrives on DVD November 28, 2006 from Fox Home Entertainment. Setting the standard for the socially relevant ensemble medical dramas of the future, St. Elsewhere offered viewers a gritty and realistic portrayal of the health care industry and the lives of those who work in it. While St. Elsewhere dealt with life and death issues on a daily basis, the doctors and staff were able to maintain balance - and viewer affection - with a healthy dose of quirky humor.

The first season of this compelling series introduced many notable actors including Academy Award®-winner Denzel Washington* (Training Day, Man on Fire), Howie Mandel ("Deal Or No Deal," "The Outer Limits"), Ed Begley Jr. ("Arrested Development," "Six Feet Under"), Ed Flanders (Bye Bye Love), David Morse (The Green Mile, "Hack") and Tim Robbins (War of the Worlds, Mystic River). Over its six seasons, the series was nominated for 63 Emmy Awards and won 13. The four-disc DVD collection includes all 22 first-season episodes, as well commentary on select episodes and multiple featurettes including "St. Elsewhere: The Place To Be." The St. Elsewhere: Season 1 DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.98 U.S./$54.98 Canada. Prebook is November 1.
